Has anyone ever seen or used these extra track biters? They seem like they would work good in sloppy conditions but would tare up grass and be very rough on hard surfaces.

I looked at those but I figured if I can't get enough traction with regular trx then maybe I should not be there as in wait a day or two for it to dry out. Maybe They would be good for situations that I don't see. Maybe snow?

wait till you see the price!!! i think single grouser steel tracks on a ctl would be very nice for severe conditions.

I"m sure they wouldn't work on a Deere 332 CTL,because where they clamp on would be rubbing on the inside of the machine.There is not much room on my machine between the track and the body,it has the 18" tracks.

Maybe if you had the narrow tracks.But again the tracks bags down close to the cross member where the track frame bolts to the machine.They also might hit there,especially if tracks got a little loose.:usflag:

Yea that is what I thought also if their is enough room for them. Especially when working in some heavy debris that could get caught on the tracks and wedge between the extra tracks and the undercarriage.

They only claim to fit Bobcat 12 and 18" tracks at this time. They are definately not for grass or pavement, but do look like they would provide serious tradtion in the really bad stuff. $1300 does not seem too high for what they could provide.

Plus if you're working in conditions that even a CTL can't get traction in, you need an excavator.

They aren't even spaced evenly either, what a joke.
